    Default Source for walnut round-butt "bulldog" grips for RIA M206 snubby?

    Picked up one of these Rocker M206 snubbies on the cheap and wanted walnut round-butt "bulldog" a la the old Charter Arms Bulldog .44;

    The original wood are too skinny and the included black rubber oversized grips don't do anything for me.

    Thanks tons in advance for suggestions!

    No suggestions, but interested to hear thoughts on how it holds up under fire and over time. Was seriously thinking about grabbing one a couple years back but heard mixed reviews on quality (not fit/finish...more like timing and other factors).

    I had one I picked up to evaluate for my YouTube channel. It shot itself out of time in less than 100 rds.

    Thanks, I thought I had heard that either on here or elsewhere. Guess its good I passed then...no reason for that to happen with today's machinery, especially that quick.

    I looked into it and it appears to be a problem with QC of the metal parts of the internals. It's happened to a few people online that I've seen. Before everything went to crap, you could get a Taurus snubby for bot much more and they had way fewer problems in my experience.


    And that's saying something.

    Ironically, that's what I ended up buying when I was looking. Their one 357 model, which was better regarded than some of their 38s
